Great news everyone!

Hey everyone I hoped you enjoyed my last post. But now it's time for another stats update. As you can tell by the title what I'm about to say will be very good. As of this moment I have 581 views for the past three weeks. That is great. Some of you are probably thinking that means A Day With Akshay  right on track. No, it's even better. The views have reached within 100 views o the goal. At this rate the curse that was put on my blog is gone. What curse you ask? The curse that I grow two months then plummet down the next! Sadly spring break is dying away so I won't have time to post as much as I have this week. But I still will do my very best to put as many as I can! I never told you guys but I have a new idea for  manga and I'm going to share it with you guys to critique. So expect that soon. I'll give you guys a background of it first.  But right now I will work on those to put up later this week. Have a great week everyone!

Japanese Word of The Day! Day 100!

First of all something amazing has happened. I finally am in the triple digits. Even though the Japanese Word of The Day posts have been around almost a year. I haven't been able to make them all the time. But now I finally got to Day 100!

Today's word of the day is ひゃくhyaku. This means 100.

Why did I make these?
For those of you who have been following this blog since the very beginning now that these word of the days weren't always here. This blog was originally made to sponsor my ideas for a manga. So you could read it and critique my ideas before I stated drawing it out(which I am still learning how to do). Then I started making reviews  for movies and tv shows just because I can. But why did I make these word of the days? For those of you who have been around a while now that I need time to create my ideas for manga. Also I can't go to the movies every single day! So I thought hey maybe I should teach people Japanese while they are waiting! And that's exactly what I've been doing. So now you have a really detailed explanation of why this happened.

Japanes Word of The Day! Day 97!

Today's word of the day is 地chi. I taught you fire then I taught you water. So now what? I'm teaching you the word for earth. Not the planet, the element they use in Avatar the Last Airbender.

This post is here for technical difficulties

Japanese Word of the Day! Day 96!

Today's word of the day, like yesterday's has two translations. 水sui or 水mizu. Unlike yesterday the words do not have a difference in meaning. They both mean water. There's a huge complicated thing in Japanese where the words can be read in a Chinese reading or a Japanese reading. This is one of those things. Sui is a Chinese loan word but Mizu is pure Japanese!

Japanese Word of The Day! Day 95!

Today's word of the day is 火hi or 火事kaji. Both of these mean fire. But the first one is used for a fire you can control, like in a stove, but the second one is used for uncontrolled fire. Like if a house is burning down. In the manga I am creating the main character can control fire so I will use 火. But when he loses control I will use 火事.

Pokemon Fanfiction Part 2

Marc: This’ll go down right here right now, and it’s a 3 on 3 battle. Got it?
Akshay: Yep.

Marc: Alright! Pidgeot let’s go!

(He sends out Pidgeot.)

(A sleeping ryhorn gets up and goes on to the battle field.)

Akshay: Ryhorn! You want to battle!

Ryhorn: Horn!

Akshay: I’ll take that as a yes. Alright use tackle!

(Ryhorn goes really fast to tackle Pidgeot.)

Marc: Pidgeot use Wing Attack!

(It hits Ryhorn.)

Akshay: Ryhorn use Stomp.

(It really hurts Pidgeot.)

Marc: PIdgeot are you okay!

(Pidgeot nods.)

Marc: Alright Pidgeot use air cutter then take to the skies.

Akshay: Oh no you don’t! Ryhorn dodge it!

(Ryhorn dodges and tackles Pidgeot before it takes to the skies.)

Marc: Pidgeot are you okay?

Pidgeot: Pidgeot!

Marc: Pidgeot use air cutter over and over again!

(That’s exactly what Pidgeot does.)

Akshay: Ryhorn take the hit like a man.

(Ryhorn just stands there and lets all the attacks hit him.)

Marc: You’ll go down eventually!

(Pidgeot keeps attacking. Ryhorn keeps his ground.)

Marc: Now try gust it can’t hold its ground forever!

(Pidgeot keeps trying but it is useless.)

Marc’s thoughts: Why is this not working?

(PIdgeot stops and collapses on the ground but has not fainted yet.)

Akshay: Alright now’s our chance use horn drill!

(It’s a direct hit and Pidgeot faints.)

Pidgeot: Pidgeot.

Marc: PIdgeot return.

(Pidgeot gets recalled.)

(A man hiding behind a tree is spying on Akshay and Marc’s battle.)

???: That Ryhorn of his Is a sturdy one.

???’s thoughts: I’ll wait ‘til Ryhorn is weak enough then I’ll take it!

Akshay: Good Job Ryhorn! Do you wanna keep fighting?

(Ryhorn nods.)

Marc’s thoughts: This Ryhorn is sturdy maybe my secret weapon will help.

Marc: Go Blastoise!

Akshay: Him? Already? Whatever Ryhorn use horn drill!

(Ryhorn strikes Blastoise but it only dents his shell.)

Marc: Blastoise use Aqua Jet!

(It’s super effective. )

Akshay: Ryhorn are you okay?

(Ryhorn nods.)

Akshay: Use Tackle.

(It hardly does anything.)

Marc: Mega Punch!

(Super effective.)

???: That Ryhorn is so sturdy to withstand such powerful attacks.

Marc: Alright time for my secret weapon!

(Marc shows his mega ring and Blastoise turns into Mega Blastoise.)

Akshay: Oh my.

Akshay’s thoughts: Last time this happened Charizard was in the poke center for days.

Akshay: Ryhorn do you want a break?

(Ryhorn shakes his head no.)

Akshay: If you say so, Ryhorn use tackle!

(Ryhorn tackles Mega Blastoise but not even a scratch on him.)

Marc: Use hydro pump!

(Mega Blastoise uses hydro pump and it makes Ryhorn faint.)

???: Go steal ball! (The steal ball is like a poke ball just all black and has じゃあくon it which means evil in Japanese.)

(Ryhorn goes into the steal ball and ??? picks it up.)

Akshay: How is that possible? It’s impossible to capture an owned pokemon.

???: Were you not listening I said it’s a STEAL ball!

Akshay: Oh, anyways, give me back my ryhorn!

???: No thank you.

Akshay: Send it out right now!

???: Okay.

(Ryhorn comes out. But has red eyes now.)

Akshay: Ryhorn return.

(Ryhorn can’t be recalled.)

???: Ryhorn use tackle.

(Ryhorn tackles Akshay into a wall.)

Marc: Akshay!

(Marc rushes to Akshay’s aid.)

Marc: Are you okay?

Akshay: I think so but I don’t get why Ryhorn would do that.

???: You fool! This aint your Ryhorn anymore, also the steal ball makes it forget about its past owner entirely.

(Akshay stands up with Marc’s help.)

Akshay: Thanks Marc.

???: Now I’ll take your Blastoise!

Another Stats Update!

At the end of March I said we need to get at least 170 pageviews a week to surpass the viewcount. On the first da I did horrible I got only 9 but the following days were well in the 60's. Mainly thanks to my British viewers. Thanks Brits! Right now we have gotten 230 views altogether! That happened in one week, which is truly amazing. If you guys can keep that at around that level I should be able to surpass last month in three weeks like I did last month. I already have a third of what I need so let's keep going! I'm counting on you guys! Also the next part of my pokemon fanfiction will be up in about a week.

Notice anything different about this blog?

Yesterday this blog changed. It was only a minor change but to me and hopefully to you a cool one. Any guesses? The title changed! My blog still says A Day With Akshay but there's more now. Now it says A Day With Akshay アクシェイとの1日.That's right I have it written  in both English and Japanese! How cool is that?! Who's foreigner friendly? This guy! I will put this in other languages one day but for right now this'll have to do. Just thought I would tell you incase you didn't notice.
